PPA is being undertaken to expand available evidence on effective ways to prevent teen pregnancy. The evaluation will document and test a range of pregnancy prevention approaches in up to eight program sites.

The findings of the evaluation will be of interest to the general public, to policymakers, and to organizations interested in teen pregnancy prevention. This proposed information collection activity focuses on collecting baseline data from a self-administered questionnaire which will be used to perform meaningful analysis to determine significant program effects. Through a survey instrument, respondents will be asked to answer carefully selected questions about demographics and risk and protective factors related to teen pregnancy.

E9–26802 Filed 11–6–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE M DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Background and Brief Description In 2007, there were 1505 cases of malaria reported in the US and its territories. Except for one transfusionrelated case, all cases in 2007 were imported. Almost all of the imported malaria cases could have been prevented with appropriate malaria prophylactic drug regimens. Achieving appropriate malaria prophylaxis requires knowledge and action by both the traveler and healthcare provider (HCP). There are limited studies on HCP knowledge and practices regarding malaria prophylaxis. We propose an activity to better define the types of HCPs giving pre-travel advice about malaria, their knowledge gaps regarding malaria, and their barriers to appropriate prescription of malaria prophylaxis. All U.S. travelers with malaria reported in 2010 and their healthcare providers (if one was seen) who provided pre-travel advice will be interviewed by phone. Interviews will take no longer than 15 minutes. Questions to be asked of patients include demographics, knowledge of malaria risks, and use of prophylaxis during their travel. HCPs will be asked about their training, practice type, and knowledge of malaria risk and prevention. Univariate analysis will be done to describe characteristics of HCPs who give inappropriate prescriptions for malaria prophylaxis. Bivariate and multivariate analysis is planned to examine the association between various HCP characteristics and provision of inappropriate (or no) malaria prophylaxis. Findings from this activity will help CDC’s malaria branch with the development and targeting of educational materials for HCPs regarding malaria in travelers. Information gathered will also guide content of educational and review articles to be published in journals most often read by target HCPs. There is no cost to respondents.
